If you would like your piece thrown to the wolves send it to salinger@ameritech.net with "Workshop the hell out of this poem" as the subject line.


This weeks submission comes from a Clevelandpoetics - The Blog reader.

between classes

do they ponder the nature of the question “if A squared + B squared = C squared, then what is the relationship of x to y?”

bookbags burdened with filtered knowledge slung from shoulders too tired to care, lag in the daze of confusion

do they worry about the upcoming midterm in Geography of the United States? What is the relationship between Massachusetts and Rhode Island?

soles walk for miles in circles rimmed by buildings constructed of the eternity of truths unwhispered

do they contemplate the image of pine trees and work through lines of poetry in their minds as they mis-confidently stride to the lecture on the relationship of America to politics?
